P.D. Ogg Helles Tapping And Silent Auction Item Collection says
On Friday June 10th, South Dock will be the first of four local venues to release a new craft beer in support of local brewer and Colorado School of Mines Professor, Dr. Paul Ogg, who last year was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of lymphoma.

The three other places will be Declaration Brewing, Falling Rock Tap House and Comrade Brewing. The beer, a German Helles, is based on Ogg’s own recipe and called P.D.Ogg Helles. It picks up where the Brewers Association’s #BiggestSmallBeerEver campaign left off. This time, proceeds from sales of the Helles will go to support Paul’s wife, two young daughters and medical bills.

Dr. Ogg is a Golden, CO resident, teacher at Colorado School of Mines, husband, father of two and the co-founder of Declaration Brewing – a labor of love for the 46 year-old from Iowa. A
microbiologist, who studied cancer while working on his PhD, Ogg knew what his cancer diagnosis in January 2015 meant. He’s been fighting it since with aggressive and unorthodox
treatment, while still working at CSM, being a husband and father, and opening Declaration Brewing with partners Greg Schlichting and Mike Blandford. Blandford, who first was Ogg’s
student before he became his business partner, together with many Ogg friends and associates wanted to support Ogg and his family through his beer. Special Thanks to:

Jason Gladfelter, Brewery Mediation Network
Alan Simons, Dry Dock Brewing
Chris Black and Beth Walter, Falling Rock Tap House
Melissa McNair and Greg Schlichting, Declaration Brewing
David Lin, Comrade Brewing

Blandford and Gladfelter got together several months ago to hash out short-, medium- and long-term plans to help Paul through his difficult journey. While three breweries and FRTH are currently on board, more breweries have expressed serious interest for later brews in the P.D.Ogg Series line up. The primary goal is to help cover Paul’s medical costs and set up a college fund for his daughters. From there, Blandford and Gladfelter hope to continue workin on this cause throughout the craft beer community, forming a charity to help others like Ogg.

Keep fighting, Paul! #BrewingSupport #PDOggBeer #CraftBeerFamily
